Can you name any actor in the 1940s who gave great performances in a dozen films?. Here are the Dana Andrews dozen: SWAMP WATER (very dear to a man who cared about his Southern roots), THE PURPLE HEART, WING AND A PRAYER (one of his favorite performances), THE OX-BOW INCIDENT (he was really proud of the picture and of his performance), LAURA (the film that made him a star), FALLEN ANGEL (my personal favorite), A WALK IN THE SUN, CANYON PASSAGE, THE BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES (he should have won an Academy Award for this one), DAISY KENYON, BOOMERANG, WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS.
